Mine are not scratching at the door. Belan can get into the room at this age. Because that's that's an all things that happens talking. Yeah that's the nature of the beast. There chaos incarnate. But we love them and we're talking just in the pre conversation about a how you gotta be a little different to shoes path of being a professional poker player and i'm pretty sure everybody in the village owns cats. And so like. I think that like little different chaos incarnate. Our little familiar that follow us around. That's just how it's gotta be for poker players. Well i think that's smart. People just happens some make sense. That's why that's why has a dog. He's the one exception. Maybe well let's start this out by asking you about your story. Let's tell the listener and me the story of how you got involved playing cards okay. So poker-playing days go back to. I suppose we'll always likes of always liked games above. Enjoy blame games and as a kid. I used to play a lot of chess. Am but i suppose than i kinda iconic gave hill because probably true nobody. Nobody my age they nobody. Id play chess. Am obviously very different more than you have now. And let's set the time line. You know where. How old are you now. What i'm year was this forty three now. So we're talking. We're talking to me too late it talking today. Eighties now and going into the air and country of origin before relocating to greatness village orlands all right all right so yes there was just a really a lack of opportunity to sort of you know. Do anything without our expand on that and by the way like the chess just wasn't a big thing in ireland. Just they could be. There was no certainly not where. I was. Certainly not where i lived. Was there any sort of chess coats and like that as well wasn't the beginning now internet we had you could go on google cesco. You know even if you knew you could find didn't it's not like versed i in the local papers. You know the first role about chess club is you. Don't talk about chess club right. It was an school around on like that. So just kinda just kinda moved away from a like. I play cards. Only france gotten serious. Play poker. didn't even know the rules. Sorts all sorts of crazy wildcards still happening never paid for any sort of major major money of his all like m. coins and fifty pieces like it was very very small when we did play and then i started them.

Paerson never played a beautiful instill Capable i was never very good. Selloff lost interest pretty quick whereas games just kind of they they kinda spoke to me more because that was always a pretty smart kid and so they kind of i could. I could figure you figure out strategy white well and and so i think that was. That was the appeal. Two thousand three. I was working in working in sales at that time. And he used to try to bind. taylor thing at the time the solids i saw childhood but i was pretty a pretty sure it sounded like assembly tropicana orange juice points and doesn't that you sell itself. Yeah pretty much older still. The is about like the truck and drive shops. They give me the argument. I wasn't just taking artists and sending in for someone that's doing olives bounces and say as they call it soggy on and around that time and i think around that time i actually started to take a little bit gambling.

"When you look at the american league rookie of the year i still really like rose arena again. I know he's not the sexiest pick because he is the favourite. And you're gonna have to pay a little bit of juice. But i believe if he continues on the pace that he has been on. I still believe last season last. Postseason is going to matter positively in his favor and the reason for that is the voters are human and everybody remembers how he absolutely exploded in the playoffs last year and i think they cannot wait to reward him for that and as long as he continues on the pace that he's on right now i think he ultimately wins the award. If you're looking for a little bit of value probably the next guy is a dullest garcia. I don't think i'm going too far down the line after him. I certainly am not going to go. Eleven to one with andrew von as impressive as he is ben this season. I just don't think he has the ability to win this award. I'm expecting randy arosa rain at continue on the pace he has been and i think he's got locked up. What about when you look at the price. So if think he's got locked up christie you look at the price of minus one fifty and look at it as good value. Not really the. But that's the thing. I think it's going to be a winning bet though it's probably would have been better off. You place. the bet a month ago on him obviously but I think he's going to win the value. No it's it's just not there. If you're looking for a value bet you take the next guy in line in garcia. I i think that your best bad here but yeah again. I just don't think anybody's gonna win it but arose arena. No and i. I don't i think you're probably right about that. I mean i think when you look at the year that he's had especially when you look at the buzz and you mentioned chris. I think you're dead on correct. I think you look at the way that he played last year..

We fixed the glitch But we had a little bit of a glimpse to click to kick off the second hour. let's get into a little raji. Rationale shall we. It's time to dive into the mlb futures market with none. Other than chris runge fans have may not have heard of you. Don't know much about ryan pitch. What kind of pitcher are you right. Handed a weird guy. Probably been on a plane where you don't have penis on that particular day they're not handing out because somebody on the plane has a severe allergy is really does know is baseball and obviously this team is not where you want to be this season in your thank thank now. I'm i'm pretty sure it's the rationale of ronji on you better. You bet i love that. Who was that that you were interviewing chris. That said you're obviously not where you want to be. That is former white. Sox pitching coach. Don cooper a native love. He's got that That new york attitude. Which i actually i kind of liked quite a bit while. Yeah i love it. I love the reaction where he's like We're not where you're not exactly where you wanna be while you think. Yeah we saw. It was part of the pre-game show. We did an interview. Every game pre-game every game and some days. He was in a good mood some days. He was read ask coupe and That was one of those red. Ask coop days well. that's great. that's awesome. I love that all right. let's get into a little raunchy rationale. Let's start with the american league Who is gonna win the al pennant when you look at Not rivers right now. The markets are houston your favorite and plus two twenty five white sox right behind him Plus two sixty the yankees are now third on the list of plus four hundred the razor plus four hundred the red sox plus twelve hundred and the as our sit right now at eighteen to one chris when let's a little round g rationale when you take a look at the al pennant and futures market.

"We just haven't seen in in long longtime over one hundred years at this bar at about one hundred years So you know. But i do think vlad's got a legitimate shot. I don't think this is as much of a separation as it was. Maybe at some point during the season i agree with you there. I think there is separation. I still think it's otani but and a lot of things gotta go in the blue jays action exactly. It definitely is not out of the realm of possibility. I'd give it closer to like a pudding percentage on it. I put it sixty percents anita and forty over vladi now but that could switch. That could absolutely change and final award guys. I don't think this is a foregone conclusion that garrett cole is your cy young award winner in the al. I don't even think it's close. I don't even think garrett cole is the leader in my mind it's two guys and they're both in chicago lance lynn. Who carlos don. Yeah i i think those two. It's a two man race on that team. Who's going to get that award. And can you believe that right now if we if we were to reverse a year ago where we really sit here and say carlos. Don is going to be a finalist for the cy young award. No i don't think carlos to tell you that he would say something along those lines. But you're right. I i do think it's right now. I think it is lance lynn. To lose i i totally agree garrett cole. For as as good as he's been this year Landslide has been better lance. Lynn plays on a better team. And because of that. I think those factors they matter. You know what you're getting from lands lamb when he comes out on the no matter what's happening you get in at least six any at least you get at least six innings from. That's how good he's been all season. Long coal actually has more innings pitched than he does at this point. But again i i go back to the fact that that lance lynn is playing on a better team. He's got his his. Era is almost under to. He's at two point four. Nobody's hitting the baseball off guy right now and so. It's to me in my pain. I got lynn. Coal ryndam after is the third guy but certainly This isn't geared. Kohl's trophy at this point in the year. I don't think. I don't think there's anything garrett cole could do to get the trophy because i'm gonna go back to our last point we're talking about. Who are the people that are voting for this writers. And i don't think garrett kohl's going to be able to shake off when it comes to cy young award voting time everyone that's thinking about garrett cole this season the first thing they think of is sound bite that sound bite and that sound bites just gonna last all year no matter for better or worse i do not agree that garrett cole should be the poster boy for a scandal that has nothing to do with him one hundred percent. It's just the world we're living in. And unfortunately he is the poster boy. And i think when it comes to voting time it's going to lance lynn and rodion. It's not gonna go to garrett cole i mean listen. We know how voters are being the moral police when it comes to the hall of fame. So it's not gonna be any different when it comes to this particular. You're right that sound bite and we. I think we both said this when it happened. Like that's not going to go. Well that that having that soundbite where he was just fumbling the question in terms of avi used digging stuff or not. That's that that's not although we're able as former players to kind of turn to page on it and move on. Most of the voters are most of the people who vote on these type of awards aren't able to turn that page and that will be the that will be even whether it's true or not that will be at the forefront of their heads at all. Well how did he do. After the sticky stuff went away this net any other they will dissect that that is just the nature of this business. And i think you're right he. I don't know if you'll be able to shake that whether that's right wrong or indifferent. I don't know if he's going to be able to to shake that same. And that's it's unfortunate because i don't think he deserves it personally but i think it just one of those things you signed with the yankees man for three hundred twenty five million dollars. You knew that this was coming. Maybe not exactly this but some things are coming no matter what happens in baseball. There's always going to be a magnifying glass on your. I was not an alex. Rodriguez fan by remember. Every time a pay dispute would come up between the cba and they're talking about all players too much money. The looked always went immediately. To alex. Rodriguez as if he was the one that caused all of this number. Right fair point if every point but as you as you said that is kind of the business. We're that's how that's kind of how things fall when when you're dealing with these type of circumstances where he somebody has been you know a cot or alleged to have cheat That just hangs over people. I mean we're still seeing in terms of the hall of fame very bonds themis hundred percent of hall of famer about west. But you know he he he's gonna he's because of how voters feel about those type of sich those type of incidents He still sit on the outside looking in which drives me absolutely nuts because there are other names that are in there that we know for a fact should not be in there. If that was the reason that they're giving come on. Let's clean it up a little bit. Barry bonds is probably the greatest player who ever lived ever ever ever ever ever ever ever agreed agreed. No argument from your. I best best best guy ever seen put on a uniform and he was at the end of his career when i saw him play like when i was on the field. What he's he is the most intimidating figure from a outfield stamp. I'm all the way centerfield. I felt like he was literally standing next to me in the box. That's how imposing he was. And i got to see him play for a long time. We getting off subject. But yes i agree with you. I love it well before we get to far off subject. Who is this. Something that tony i can totally do. We're gonna call it a day today on big time baseball. Thank you so much for joining us. Tony work if people find you..

"If as you said the scenario is he hasn't pitched the rest of the year. My focus is on zack. Wheeler at this point. I mean e ease another complete game shutout. Last night are yesterday's game against a man. He's got a few of those this year think he leads. The league in complete games He he's gotta be the front runner right now. If that scenario stays to say. I almost agree with you. I think he is the front runner in the runner up to the guy that i think should be this year. Cy young award winner. If it's not jacob degrom of course walker bueller is so good and no one acknowledges them so much so that you just laid out the dodgers starting staff and you put them number three et. No i know as i soon as i did i was like this. You're not but you're not the only one. I do it all the time too when i think dodgers walker buehler's somehow is the eleventh name that comes to my mind and he is there as he is the best pitcher on that staff and he threw another gem last night. I believe he's leading the with the exception of of active players. I believe he has the best. Era in baseball. he's been spearheading that tire division. I really think walker bueller. With the exception of zack wheeler going out and throwing four more complete game. Shutouts i think walker bueller will be a really good pick for cy young this year. Listen you're not wrong. You're right buehler's bulos the number one leader Ahead of peralta and woodridge Year are he second in the league in in wins this year. That that should mean something as well right he you know zag. We got him on strikeouts. But you might be right you might. You might have made a compelling enough case that it could be it could very well be walker builder man and and i. I should have known better. Because i've seen him probably pitch more than any of these other starters out there and he's been legit dominant and all of those starts. That's necessarily got the wins but Listen i i don't know why we keep looking over him and and i don't know why the media hasn't picked up on them yet right. I mean it may. Maybe it's because servicer in kershaw in that rotation or are that offenses so can be so prolific at times But it is a mystery. It is misery even as we sat here and did this. We both willie's i did. I put him third on liz. As you said it's a mystery why we don't talk about it much. But i think he convinced me i it it walker buehler's probably the is probably the leader right now. It's a it's a. it's a hell of a battle. I'm looking forward to sing. What these guys do for the rest of the season. Let's talk a little. Nl mvp because as you mentioned earlier. Jacob degrom was at the top of all of our lists. He's officially off all of our. He no longer in the running. So there's a lot of names out there that is having a hell of a year and some names that are sneakily climbing these lists right now. One name. that immediately comes to mind is bryce harper. Who's just been killing it lately. Who do you think has a chance to win the nl mvp. Because i mentioned on the show a couple of weeks ago there is a guy that i'm really expecting a big second half and that for me is manny machado. If he comes alive the second half. I don't think there's anything then a stop yet. He will he is alive. I that dude is is hitting at a stupid clip right now. He's unreal. he is he. He's he's he's put this offense on their back while fernando's out here's the thing if fernando comes back after zeile and he's fernando. I think it's his lose. I really do. I would degrom. Not in the pitcher anymore. There are just too many things that fernando has done offensively That i think separate him from everything else. He's he's leading the league in slugging. These leading the legal stolen bases home runs. He's right there in the rbi ray so there are so many things that he does so well. I think it's his blues and it sounds like he's going to be coming back. I it's i mean it might not be at the shortstop position it could be alpha We'll see but i think it's is the lose after him. I think you got a. I think you've got a next year. It's tat tease junior. And in the next tier i think is machado. I think it's muncie. And i do think it's hard harper's starting to make a push now. I don't know if you remember at one point. In the season he had like thirteen home runs and like ten of them were were solo shots and east now he starting to have some guys on base woody's hit now that they've kinda Started to play better but for me. I think he's probably at the back even though he started to make a lot of noise. It's guys like machado probably underneath jetties. And then you gotta give muncie a whole bunch of love to 'cause he's been good as well you know. I also like muncie as well. But i really like your pick on tattoos and i like my pick on machado. I think this is going to be a southern california word this year. Just really do the to arguably the two best of the three best teams. The baseball i just. I think that's a really good fit over there. And like you said machado's just putting up unreal numbers and if tease comes back even semblance of what is been right you. You're not wrong. He's gonna be right there in that conversation. If not just the certified. Mvp let's look at al mvp because everyone is said all year otani otani otani but there is one thing i want. Fans are really understand about all these awards. It's who votes on them. The people who riley vote on these are writers so as of right now there's been a lot of pieces written about otani because he's done incredible things. This series done incredible things for the game. He's an incredible ambassador for the game. Globally however if the toronto blue jays really start going on a roll and vlad junior is part of the reason if not the main reason that they do go on said role. There's going to be a lot of people writing about vlad junior and when that happens going into a playoff run and into october those writers are going to vote. What's right in front of them. Vladi junior is right in front of them killing in october. There's a chance votes might be going his way. I still inclined to think otani still the mvp. But i think black has got a lot more damage to do to change mines. And here's why that point is important in terms of who's voting these are i. These are human so you know that can be moved one way or another. Based on the information that's constantly interface. As as as you just put cody and if that happens in in the blue jays are a team that are in the thick of a a pennant race or in the thick of getting in the wildcard and vlad junior is certainly in and his face is constantly. Because here's the thing. The angels are going anywhere right there. They all ties gonna keep doing. He's doing but he's literally going to be the guy that they show win. He's either pitching or he does some because their team is not going to be relevant. I don't think down the stretch whereas the blue jays all of a sudden you games are cutting to the blue jays games to see what they're doing if there's in the hunt that has in effect on the voter and so you're right if the blue jays somehow can can get into a place where night in night out. People have to tune in to see what they're doing because that races that tight and vlad junior is doing the same stuff. He's been doing all year. There is a. It's easy to see how he could somehow win this Al mvp now without that. It's otani's because of just the sheer things that he's been able to do that..

"In the same path huge moves but somehow just no one paid attention to him. I felt like the toronto blue jays. Did the exact same thing. Everyone was so busy looking at the rizzo's and and the Gallows going to new york that they're not paying attention to the the absolute aircraft carrier that the toronto blue jays moved over to toronto. I'm really. I'm really liking this but if i were to ask you a question right now thinking about it just right off top of your head who wins the al pennant. Oh damn white sox nailed it. I think the wide soccer the best team in the al man. There's so good there. Ten ten games in the half games up right now and they're almost in cruise control. I mean what you. I think the thing that's gonna separate desk. It has a chance to really separate them as the back end of their bullpen. You got those two basically closers going eight nine and nobody else has anything like that. Nobody in not only just that. Just look they're not their offense they might have the best offense in the american league. They do have the best starting staff in probably all of baseball. And i'm saying that with the dodgers existence. Like that's how good that white sox staff is my goodness and like you said the bullpen. Second to none in baseball. It's just yet not ridiculous. Nobody has anything that match is at least from the bullpen standpoint. That i that. I think the white sox back in part i mean you. You got to elite guys there Eloy jimenez back in action I mean these guys. This this team is this team was picked. Is the only team in baseball. That people predicted booed be as good as they are and have lived up to the expectation from start to this point at so far. And it's and you really have to Admired the way. They've gone about their business. Because this is a team that i'd say more young than old right and they've met that expectation you know head on and you just got to give that that ballclub a a lot of credit. I mean it guys stepping up. Brian good was it. The hit the hit a couple homers. That been you know. Walk off type. They go out and make a move. For cesar chavez. Who i think is a great ball player. Fits that team perfectly And this and they've had some magical things atmosphere Set of Ends up going Seven of all ends up going Three homers in his hits first homer in. Its three of them that day like they've had a little bit of all of that magic kind of going in that team. In my opinion. I think they wouldn't air. And that's that's hard because i liked the astros. A lot in the afc at team is is is really good. But i think the white sox have just a little bit more. It'll be fun to see those t- hopefully we get that matchup. 'cause i think that's the best match up as far as a championship goes. Is those two teams facing off against one amazing that we're saying that knowing that the tampa bay rays are over and we're saying that yeah. Forget about those guys. It's all about these teams because the white sox are you hit the nail on the head cruise control. They are sleepwalking. Through teams at this point law yesterday hit two home runs like it was nothing cease and other eleven k game dylan sees a guy who is just come out of seemingly nowhere. I mean he was always going to be a good pitcher. Did that expect them to be this. Good dawn possibly you know right making his name for a potential. Cy young award like this is just a team. That's just everywhere. They just every way they can will and can be you. It's a major. I love it. It's it's crazy. Their worst starter is kaikal. He he's he's still he's still really good pitcher at the big league level. He's their worst pitcher. And so i mean when you have their staff is and you mentioned you you said it perfectly when you start saying their staff is the best in baseball. Just think about some of the snaps out there. I mean when the dodgers are healthy. They're running out. Shir zor herschel walker. Bueller and i said him third. I probably should have put him up. Top 'cause he's he he's won a guy slept on in this game. You got aureus. And whoever the fifth one is at this point whether it's god's whether it's price they've kind of done different things at that spot That's a pretty good rotation but the the white sox probably have a more complete rotation when it's all said yeah it really is ridiculous and hey you know we just mentioned the word that everyone loves to hear cy. Young l. cy young. We've been talking about all year. We thought it was just a foregone conclusion. Jacob degrom jacob degrom jacob degrom and it's still very much could be the possibility however i'm going to give a scenario here say jacob degrom doesn't come back this season in my eyes get can't give him the cy young anymore. What do you think. No i agree. You can't if he has a pitch the rest of the season. There's no way you can give them the si- you like. When i listen i get it. It's a great first half but you know unfortunately we have a lot all stars that have great first half and then disappear in the second half. That's virtually what degrom has done is not that he's disappeared because of performance disappeared because of injury. And listen at sucks. But you can't get a cy young only pigeon half a season and it just it just does not in my opinion feel right and so you know we were talking about him as an mvp at one. Point as if you're gonna win an mvp as we talked about as a pitcher in a in a nationally. You better have done everything i mean. The whole gauntlet mean having a a an unbelievable year and pits the whole season so he's probably disqualify from that if he comes back and pitches up. Ten minutes is different. Converse in september is different conversation. But right now. I don't know how you can give it to them..

By the way, as I've kind of said, I'm not bashing the players at all for being anonymous. They are very worthy of of their bids. I mean, the the numbers that these guys had put up or obviously worthy of being all started. This is not a takedown of their talent at all. It is a conundrum that baseball faces that most of their best players, statistically going into last night and worthy of the All Star game were complete unknowns. It might remain exactly that.

Still go one of these. And i'm like like that shirt me. Got me one. But he does amazing work with project main street and everything he's done with all the families and helping people through this terrible disease. It's it's it's horrible what it does to people in how just to sit there and have your brain working but the rest of your body just create and like you said. It's one hundred percent fatal. It's there's there's people aren't getting cures for this in the fight to get cure strikeout. Ls is something boots determined to be a part of and be a big part of to support him as his friend. Just look at what. What lou gehrig said the day you know when he got up there and said i consider today i consider myself the luckiest man alive. Like here's somebody who's got a disease it's gonna kill him and he says that because he truly meant that because it is an incredible honor to put on a major league uniform. It is a gift it is. It is not a right the day you get done playing baseball. They keep playing baseball games. Baseball never stops for you. So you have for him in that moment to have the wherewithal on the understanding. Even though something tragic was happening that was going to eventually kill him. He truly understood that he was so lucky. To put a yankee uniform on and play the great game and for him to say that in that moment and now for major league baseball to recognize june second his as lou gehrig's disease for the rest of the time is so incredible and And really really fitting in.

We talked about you being able to stroll the basis at wrigley field. All by yourself. So you know what those come about what i really want to know about is your catcher and third base coach during those segments on producer. Extraordinaire coordinating producer exterior. I mean that guy right there. He's as good as it gets right. Yeah i mean nick seger. You talked about the today's modern ballplayers got to play every position. We see what. Chris ryan's do any point third centre-left now he's playing first baseball. Risks out. stieg's did at all i mean. He was multifaceted multi tool hito third base coach. Willie era asami going full. Get down on the grass. It was really really impressive. Flash in the those old high school skills and and it was pretty I was. I'm not gonna lie. There's a lot of people get out there. Salad catch you but stieg's did a pretty good job couple of rams horns a couple times. He knocked down like yet glove deal with teflon or something but other than that did a good job. Now you know it was. It was a ton of funded actually was an idea that brewed last year. That we thought about trying to do Especially with the pandemic going on no fans and when the team was on the road and colin games at home. Because we're not traveling you know working all those years in mlb network. We have studio forty two where we can go in and do live demos if something happens in a game. Let's go break that down and we got our studio across the street from field. What have we have an opportunity to go in wrigley and give fans exactly kind of what went on and so Team was in pittsburgh. Trevor williams to starting and just started with like all right. We we have a blank canvas. We don't know what's going to happen right now and kind of talked about what he might be going through emotion wise before the start of a game. You're more pitches than boom. He has a player. The backup third base backing up a simple tiny little thing that you see. Go wrong all the time. We're guys don't get there in a costume extra-base you know maybe both runners move up. Run scores whatever it. Is we get to do that. Then it was the sled bunce and getting buttons down and and then him running the bases and kind of like all the little things in a game that we get to do in little moments that we wanna show fans at home.

"They didn't have no and it turns out that they're going to miss at least one of them again when they go back out there. But that's just the nature of the beast when you're playing during the season and you play teams close to each other and good for them like at the end of the day. They weren't facing slouches. Either you look at the numbers of each of those starting pitchers coming into the game. They got really good stuff. They're capable of striking a lot of guys out and the cubs put together great at bats. And that's taken carry your business at home and then now you're on the west coast. San francisco's in first place. They're playing great baseball. They're extremely well odor starting rotation end their bullpen. So they're gonna have their hands full. And then you know that the padres are not gonna forget one second. What just went on wrigley field. They're going to be getting ready. But i think the approach they take. Every day is just is exactly that today. it's only matters today. Don't make it bigger than that. Don't make it about a series. Make it about this game rate near and because of that. That's why you're seeing these winds just happen against really good teams which tells me the cubs are a really good team. They're not this isn't a flute. Were in june i now. And their continuing to play great baseball since april seventeenth and doing it in multiple different facets. And it's fun to watch so You know good for them for taking care of their businesses like we always talk to. It's like okay. Cool your face in the pirates right not a good team and you better beat them and they do that. They're facing such taking care of the plane down to the competition. They're playing above the lesser competition. And they're playing right there with the great competition at their face and then beat him so I just love where they're at right now. Look forward to keep him keep it going. How could you not love the way they're playing. I mean they're playing a brand new baseball that at the beginning of the season there was really no sense of identity. This is a team that was swinging for defenses and we sat around our marquee sports. Now we're studios tony and said if this team can just start putting the ball in play and doing the little things and that's what we're seeing right now. They're they're getting on base. The scoring runs. They're stealing bases. It seems to be a complete team effort in when guys go down in the injury bug. We've seen other guys to step right back up. It's been another link in the chain mentality and we saw how they struggled and scuffled just a little bit during the month of april but wants to turn may and they turn that calendar page. I mean they look like a completely different team so when it comes to that turnaround in may and then back into the month of june tony. What was the most impressive thing you. I think it's what you said right there at the identity. They resented a few days ago that the cubs feel like they're never out of game right now. They feel like they're always able to win each night. And they've proven that they went the almost the entire month of may without losing a game by multiple run. They were right in there. They had ninth inning rallies. Everybody on twitter wants to call them like fake rallies but they're not fake when you're able to come back and even if you don't tie game but you still score two or three runs the night new keep coming back it. It gives that believe in instills that belief in this team that they can come back..

It's ryan dempster long with me and tony.

We cover these gains last. You're going through no fans and you know you kinda like the parts of it. You appreciate it just like the noises and the crack of the bat and the purity of it but always somebody at twenty five percent and then sixty percent and sixty percent felt like there was like people spilling over seats because it felt so full and to think about one hundred percent. Being in there is just awesome. We saw how it translated homefield advantage was at its finest players that just get electrified by that. Probably none bigger than the guy man at shortstop in avi by as he lives for that moment he feeds off that adrenalin and and it was in full force to think about having the possibility of one hundred percent for a cardinal series. I'll tell you what i know where i'm going to be in. It's going to be at ten sixty west. Addison absolutely the federal landmark landmark. Tony a one hundred percent. I mean it seems like it's been so long since we've seen a full crowd crowded house at wrigley field and to get that crowd back especially versus st louis like devastating. I know we're gonna be right across the street. Yeah it's gonna be great and like dempster just said to people spilling over. I actually saw the other day dived like two rows over to try to get a foul ball. And i was thinking i thought the moment to that i was like last year. You just didn't see crazy things like that. 'cause foul balls. Were just playing off the seats in the empty stadium in it. If felt very weird so yeah. This is incredible. I mean this padre series in particular. It did feel like a hundred percent. It was night and day compared to even with twenty five percent in obviously anything we had last year so if felt great the players really fed off it. We heard multiple hobby chance and he followed with homers in this series. We got a curtain call. Which was really cool. At first one. I've seen at wrigley into years Some mvp chance. Patrick wisdom when he had a big series. I just think all around like great vibes in great energy at wrigley has everybody just seems so much more appreciative to be back there. Young energetic crowd no doubt about it versus san diego in damp to get that. Sweep off the padres you know. They're sitting in first place out west when they entered the series and for the comes to be able to knock them office well as beating the dodgers and the new york mets. They're nine and versus teams right now sitting in first place but the fact that they were able to dodge three bullets from san diego. Joe musgrove Of course yu darvish and blake snell.

land use plan for the doctors he had a home run or he was on bass and someone behind a minute the home run and when they were rounding third days they gave each other a high five and if you Google that says who invented a high five dusty Baker gets credit for actually invented in the high five that's you I don't know what kind of monies in that but I mean if that's the case that's pretty nice in in there might have been the tooth pick thing I always thought that was cool I tried that for a little bit as a kid it didn't work out well yeah go ahead and do that I mean they they give them credit I think they may have get give some players on Kentucky basketball but you know I remember really I don't I don't think I started doing the hot what makes sense to me but he actually got the credit for that not I don't remember the other player was but it was when I think of a eighties twenty played with the doctor sure I think that makes sense so Danny how do you feel about this red

seventy this is astronomical he is at this point I think it's about a hundred thirty five hundred thirty six mills what it is it and while it has grown and it sounds like a lot of money but it's it's the nature of the game and obviously if they win it's not it's not a problem but in all of the winning doesn't happen that's another story Denny I appreciate the call and and certainly perspective that goes along with it five one three seven four nine seven thousand eight hundred the big one pound seven hundred eighteen anti I don't know about the the whole inventing the hi fi that one not taking credit which would you prefer well you know the the inventing the high fiver World Series ring and caring that trophy I think I take the the World Series ring every time Miller just me Spring Hill Tenn seven hundred WLW him in either I'm okay what would be excited about these rich and you feel like the the prognosticators are correct because I I we used to say that I thought they were drunk or higher had blunt head trauma when they were saying they had no hope of what not gonna believe I gotta believe and and then began to they were always will almost always right I'm real excited about what to read that next year main I can't believe they spent the money that they spent I think they have a good enough team last year to complete but that their pitching was wasn't there wall was for a while the I mean the the starting pitchers did you were were not as strong as you would hope that the relief corps was there and then they got tired out and and you know that that's the nature of the expectation is of course it in the debt that Chris wealth mention this I mean you know the the one through five of the starting rotation looks solid as could be and you could even go down six and seven is a possible situation there too so that's that right there will get you through and with some bats and generating offense that yeah I don't know about the small ball thing I mean we got so many big batch then you'll have to worry about on over into just like bring them home well I'm I'm answer no excuses this year they're saying hand pertain to deal with and I really like I mean even some of the guys that they had played last year that started for like a week and ring and and that couple Lestat it's going to be able to keep her get out of some of the guys and say that that's off the bench kind of stuff there that's it in a case in need and AS left handed or right handed when when you know there's that requirement to when you need some type of move to be made I appreciate the call J. since first on the other side I like this shepherd service bunting sucks see I I think and I don't know I don't know if I'm too old school about this or not everybody's about the excitement of the home run everybody's the excitement about you know the lot of offense and I and I like scoring runs especially that's our team doing it but the manufacturing of runs a in the danger on the base pads of do you know shaking a picture and their confidence and not sure what's going on something that Billy Hamilton was great at but the problem is you getting to first to be able to start becoming a thief taken second third is the problem it but the bond and then just you know situationally speaking doing what you have to do to move stuff around it and the amazing thing with these guys a lot of the time even with the pitching being strong is it it's almost like pro golfers in many cases where these guys can actually place the ball where they want to place at all tonight I wanna put it over there now granted they they do a lot of stuff with you know you know all the stats to say okay well we're gonna open up love field go ahead but nobody that nobody bonds they hit it over that direct that's the thing I don't understand and I mean and I'm just a simple man trying to find my way in the world about this are you are you ready for its baseball do you do you see the promise are you hopeful do you believe or you waiting because it's been so many years of misery sterling hang out with room for you to speak your mind coming up on the other side seven four nine seven thousand eight hundred a big one pound seven hundred WLW.
